Strategy and Planning

When you're running a business you need strategies to ensure you're doing the right things with and for your business.  You want it to delivery for you and your other stakeholders and you want to make sure you can articulate and reach your business goals.

Businesses are more successful when their strategy and business plans are captured in a way that is easily explainable to everyone in the business, where the layers of confidentiality are protected without losing the motivation of a shared purpose.  A good plan is like your GPS, it shows you alternative ways of getting to where you want to go and helps you choose the best route.

  • Integrate the goals of all stakeholders in the business
  • Document your strategic and business plans in a way that works for you
  • Know your short, medium and long term focus areas that will get you where you want to go
  • Convert these into financial and operational plans for the current year
  • Be able to talk with confidence about what you're wanting to achieve
  • Share your plans with your team so they fell engaged and part of the success
